The selected cartoons appeared first in other publications, either in print or online, or on social media, and are credited appropriately.
In today’s featured cartoon, Adams mocks British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the ‘BoJoker’, a reference to the Joaquin Phoenix-starring Hollywood film Joker that was released Friday. An interesting twist is the purported reviews the ‘Bojoker’ has received, with ‘The Tory Echo’, a reference to Johnson’s Conservative Party, giving it five stars, and EU and Ireland ‘publications’ giving it low ratings.
Bob Moran depicts Johnson walking away whistling a tune after creating an optical illusion, with reference to his new plan to keep Northern Ireland aligned with the EU common market even after Brexit.
Dave Brown also jibes at Johnson for lacking ‘reason’ over his Northern Ireland plan.
Carlos Latuff calls US President Donald Trump’s suggestion to shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down while they attempt to cross the southern border with Mexico something straight out of ‘Israel’s handbook for Gaza’.
Adam Zyglis portrays Trump as Tony Montana from the 1983 mob classic Scarface, with his lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Attorney General William Barr as his “little friends”, aka guns.
